Announcing the 2nd Annual Writing for Charity Event, sponsored by Utah Children’s Book Authors and Deseret Book. This special workshop event features more than 20 published children’s book authors of both picture books and young adult fiction.


The Writing for Charity Event, a workshop for aspiring children’s book writers (age 13 and up only, please), will provide participants with professional advice and the opportunity to have their work evaluated by one of the event’s participating authors. The event includes the opportunity to purchase books and have books signed. Participants can also purchase drawing tickets for reat prizes, including signed books and a book bag signed by all of the participating authors. All proceeds from the event will benefit the non-profit Treehouse Children’s Museum in Ogden and its award-winning Family Literacy Programs. For more information about Treehouse visit www.treehousemuseum.org or call 801-394-9663.


Writers of children’s picture books should bring a full manuscript (fewer than 1,000 words), and chapter book authors should bring the book’s first page for the critique. Participants are not required to bring work sample for the critique session. Please note that because of the length of the workshop and the set-up required, Treehouse will be closed to the public that day (Saturday, August 29.)
